Best View in Town
By dawny on 2/20/2012
I was at Plunge once in the summer early one night with a good friend and loved its trendy feel and the view! I went back with two clients when up for the National Retail Federation Show in the winter and was happy to sit inside, enjoy the peacefulness of the night and slip outside for a wonderful view of the city with a bit of snow falling. Both times I went the crowd was mild and the service was exceptional!!!

A hell of a spot!
By nyc_divo on 3/7/2007
I agree with "thebooch" on one thing, skipping the massive line. You should look for the Itailan fellow, Sal, I believe his name is, and tip him heavily in order to skip the line. I went up to a very hot, tall blonde gentleman with a crisp $100 in my hand and said, "I believe I'm on the guest list!", only to be told to wait on the line. I was then thanked for the gesture...but reassured it will be a short wait. Thanks, hot blonde guy but I think I'll try something else. I then went to Sal, who was standing just off to the side and after a quick "handshake", I was let promtly up. While checking my coat I ran into Richard Branson, and I saw a few Knicks players, and celebs up there (Jeremy Piven, was stumbling around with drink in hand). The view was great, the drinks strong, and the staff friendly. My only complaint was the wait to get downstairs. It took around five minutes for an elevator to get up stairs. But other than that it was a great night. A definite spot to check out!

I enjoyed this place. I had no problems getting, had no problems or wait getting drinks. I even managed to breifly sneak in the pool area with an insanely sexy Aidan Quinn look alike. They nicely asked us to leave. So even when breaking the rules, the service was above decent and possibly near fabulous. The heat was smeltering and far to extreme to ignore. I would absolutely go again, especially if the Aidan Quinn doppelgĂ¤nger is part of the swag.
Great weekend pool party
By moss5 on 8/31/2009
I've spent several weekends this summer at the Gansevoort. The place is crowded and the weekend party is over the top. But what makes the day is their pool boy cocktail server Travis. How this supercutie manages to serve 200 people crowded around the pool, remember all their names and their drinks while smiling and dancing is beyond me. Always great service. Fun fun party.
Bachelorette Weekend in NYC...awsome!
By bjules52 on 6/16/2009
Our group had 10 girls, and we went to Plunge on a Friday night in June . It was packed, but we managed to find room to create our little circle for dancing right outside on the rooftop! The views were awsome overlooking the river! (who cares if Jersey was across the river?? It doesn't make your view any less appealing!) Not too hot, not too chilly. We had a blast! Of course we were all so excited to be together and to be in NYC celebrating that we probably could have had fun anywhere there was booz & music ! The staff was mostly friendly, not a real issues there. Yes, the cost of drinks is pretty high (This was our experience though ALL over NYC). So, if you are planning a visit to NYC for the first time, just come expecting to pay ALOT for drinks. We planned in advance and had an idea that it would be that way so we saved up for a rockstar weekend.... This bar is in a great location (meatpacking district) so you can bar/club hop all night long by foot.

I stayed at Gansevoort last weekend. Great hotel. Nice attitudes everywhere. We went to Plunge around 7pm for a few drinks before having dinner downstairs in Ono...which was fantastic. (sit upstairs in mezzanine if possible) Drinks were expectedly expensive. View was fantastic. Nice music at a nice level so we could still hold a conversation. Seating was perfect. crowd was not as trendy that early obviously ( but this crowd didn't wait around the corner in line half of the night either). Bartenders were friendly. Glounge down stairs is nice too, although late at night ( when we went) it was obviously crowded. Great service.
Are we all going to the same place?!
By chocolateapple on 6/13/2007
This place is one of my favourite bars in Manhattan. Okay, admittedly, on nights when there are more people, service gets a little spotty and it's hard to find a place to sit, but hey, isn't that every club in New York from thursday through saturday?! The space is beautifully designed, the drinks are not at the same price points as dive bar (obviously!) but the selection (I'm a whiskey gal) is pretty good and yes, there are too many try-too-hards there at times, but if you go any night from sunday through thursday, the crowd is very chill, the music is good and the service is less crappy. It's all a matter of timing, people.
Stellar Views, Less-than-stellar Service
By the_hey_man on 12/15/2006
Went and had a drink here on a Monday night around 11:30pm. The hotel was dead but very chic; and the bar itself is pretty unique. Service was slow despite a thin crowd, and I can't really comment on the quality of drinks because it's easy to make a good Ketel Red Bull. The views from outside are amazing...and the location is great too. By the time we left the bar had started to fill up, but still wasn't too packed.
